An area man is facing felony charges for allegedly taking up-skirt videos of a female co-worker without her knowledge.
Rogers County court records show charges have been filed against Trevor Thompson, 43, of Locust Grove.
The alleged incidents occurred while Thompson was employed at ParFab in Inola.
According to the affidavit filed in the case, the business’ IT director reported that he was “conducting computer maintenance on Trevor Thompson’s company computer by remote access on Oct. 2. He reported that he observed pornographic material opened on the desktop of Thompson’s computer. He notified administration and Thompson subsequently resigned.”
Another employee reported that she escorted Thompson to his office, upon his request, to gather his personal belongings and that he began to delete files on his work computer, saying they were personal files. She requested that the files be reviewed by the IT director to make sure they were not company-related.
The affidavit states that the IT director located the deleted files, one of which was labeled “Co-worker.”
“He reviewed this file and observed an inappropriate video that [Thompson]had taken up a female co-worker’s skirt,” according to the affidavit. “He located another file labeled ‘office co-worker back again’ in which he observed another inappropriate video that Thompson had taken up a female co-worker’s skirt.”
In total the IT director reportedly found a total of 76 gigabytes worth of “clandestine videos up multiple womens’ skirts.”
The woman in the videos said she had no knowledge of the creation of the videos, according to law enforcement.
“Deputy Jerry Smittle responded to ParFab to gather a report and an external hard drive that contained the videos along with numerous other up-skirt videos that were located on Thompson’s computer. Deputy Smittle reviewed these files and observed numerous other video files of dressing rooms, malls, and public access areas where women are being filmed up their skirts and changing clothes and appearing to be a clandestine manner,” according to the affidavit.
Law enforcement says Thompson currently has a pending case in Tulsa County District Court for Indecent exposure.
“Thompson was arrested for following a female in the parking lot at Woodland Hills Mall. The victim noticed that he was videotaping her with his cell phone,” according to the affidavit, which alleges that she saw him touching himself in a sexual manner.
Thompson was reportedly also arrested for outraging public decency from an incident in January of 2016 in Inola. The affidavit in that case states Thompson was “walking around Harp’s Food Store touching himself on his genital area while looking at and following women throughout the store. It also appeared as if he was using his cell phone to take photographs or video tape the women.”
In this case, Thompson is facing four possible criminal charges: two counts of peeping tom by use of electronic device, pattern of criminal offenses and violation of computer crimes act.
Bond was set at $400,000 and Thompson was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim by any means, directly or indirectly.
